This weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta, featuring our monthly There and Back Again set of courses, saw a nice turnout with another large spectator turnout. The sims behaved for the first race, however turned a bit choppy during the second as they claimed three in the fleet with crashes causing DNFs. The spectators continue to turnout out in large numbers along the beach in the Eden Albatros region. Plus more were on Poseidon Centre Spectator Pier in the Eden Puffin region, gathered atop the lighthouse that is the name sake of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, and also at the committee boat in the Breadnut region. This week’s fleet was another all Bandit IF affair with seven sailors racing.

The first race, on the North Sea Breadnut to Eden Auk course which is the There portion of the series, saw a great fleet start with a wind out of the southwest (225°) at 18 kts. Dess got things going, crossing the start line at 00:00:03 with Kurt was right on her stern, crossing the start line at 00:00:04, with Jackson following right behind at 00:00:08. Carlota was next to cross the start line, at 00:00:19, followed by Neil, at 00:00:25, Margo, at 00:00:34, and Moon, at 00:00:53. Dess’s short lead at the front of the pack, from a great start did not last long, however as Jackson, Carlota, Neil, Kurt, and Margo all tacked to a better line west to the first mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle in the Ziziphus region, placing Dess behind them. Jackson would charge ahead and maintain his lead to the finish line in Eden Auk, claiming line honors. Carlota would cross the finish line second, followed by Neil, Kurt, Margo, Dess, and Moon.

The second race, on the North Sea Eden Auk course which is the Back Again leg of the series, saw the wind flip to 135° (SE) still blowing at 18kts. Carlota got things started this time, as she crossed the start line first at 00:00:16. Dess, still showing some a great pre-start routine, crossed next at 00:00:33. Moon was right behind her, crossing at 00:00:39, followed by Neil, at 00:00:41, Margo, at 00:00:59, Jackson, at 00:01:00, and finally Kurt, at 00:01:22. Jackson, although next to last across the start line, took the port tack line alone down to the Nance region then tacking east to the first mark, the green buoy south of Lighthouse Isle, in the Ziziphus region. The rest of the fleet took the starboard tack line out of the race line to the Eden Albatros region where they tacked south to the Ziziphus region. The southern tack to the Ziziphus region by the rest of the fleet is where the trouble started as several crashed crossing the region border from the Mammea region into the Ziziphus region. Dess, Moon, and Kurt would all not recover here, subsequently recording DNFs. Carlota and Margo were able to get back to their boats and continue on. Neil went through unscathed and slipped into second behind Jackson, who’s alternate line placed him in the lead. Jackson’s lead would hold as he crossed the finish line first, taking line honors. Neil crossed the finish line second, followed by Carlota, and Margo.
